RFT Mission Statement
Riverside Faith Temple Ministires, Int'l. has been called to proclaim the gospel ministry for the whole man. This includes the development of man spiritually, physically, mentally, economically and socially. Therefore, God has raised the ministry:
To proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and encourage them to identify with the body through the local assembly.
To make disciples by the teaching of the Word, nurturing of the believer and training for the work ministry.
To encourage each believer to develop a prayer ministry privately and to faithfully participate in congregation intercessory prayer.
To help each disciple develop in his ministry gift, the spirit manifestation gifts and assimilate that person in the body.
To demonstrate Christ through our service to the community, and the support of missions to the world.
To promote both Christian and Secular Education for the mental (soulish) development of our children.
To create an atmosphere for worship to the glory of God which includes praise, the Word, singing and giving.
To promote fellowship among the believers through small groups.
To encourage families to worship together in the spirit of unity, faith, love and power so that Satan can not divide them.
To teach the word of faith which prepares one for eternal life, but also equips one to live the abundant life.
To call, train, and develop people for multiple - staff ministry or to be sent out as Ambassadors for Christ.
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. All all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trepasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.": (2 Corinthians 5:17-21)
